Hi Matt Miller

When is Hobie going to come out with an accessory or mod to protect the Compass' rudder ???
I've only taken my Compass out a couple times and I don't see how damage to the rudder can be avoided. Especially when cartopping the yak. I also have a Revo 13 and a paddle yak. Both are much easier to cartop. Even using two people its hard not to have the rudder hit the ground.
The newer Outback at least has an H-rail on the stern and with a little effort we can custom fabricate something to protest the rudder (per online posts on the subject).

As the stern of the Compass is an angled V we can't easily adapt the Outback H-rail

When is Hobie going to address this vital issue ???

To anyone besides Matt, if you have a Compass specific mod recommendation (other than the Boondock) please post it here

I went with cartopping upside down a few times and that was only moderately better.
I've since been using a Hullivator and life is so much better
